But I went with the a10 ascend from bass pro. Has a lot of room to store stuff and is pretty stable, but most important to the original post, it's cheap. Any of the ascends at bass pro are great for price especially if you want a new kayak. But check craigslist because some have great deals for better quality, just means they are used.

That being said, its still much faster than most any other marsh boat and tracks better than them also. I considered one, but want to use it for fishing on the bay also, so that ruled out the Nucanoe for me. but it is a stable kayak.
The FS12 kayaks are not bad kayaks, but BPS has cheapened them out some. I looked at some and they made the plastic on them so thin they filled the inside for the kayak, under the seat, with spray foam. I do not recommend getting one. Yes it will work, but its not going to hand the abuse other kayaks will. If someone wants a cheaper kayak, I would recommend the Prescador line which are the old molds for the Tarpon Kayaks before they put the attachment tracks on them. Perception kayaks are owned by the same company as Wilderness Systems and just sells kayaks cheaper made in the old Wilderness molds. Academy sells them for $499 new and they can be found in Sand and camo colors.
I've been lurking and reading up on kayaks for a few weeks and based on your suggestion I looked in to Perception. The reviews are outstanding and $499 is a great price, even with shipping from Academy. I ordered one today. Thank you for the heads up

I also have an old town canoe and was hoping to be able to stay with them. But they dont seem to make the predator any more (at least I couldnt find it on their website.) Is it a sit on top or a sit in? Which current model is it most like?

Cabela's mesh series works OK as you can shoot with them on. Many of the kayak ones have straps on the shoulders for mobility and you can still shoulder a gun while wearing one. In the winter I wear my PFD under my jacket as it adds warmth. In rougher water its base layers, then a dry top, PFD and jacket. IN the worst case, if I took a swim nothing but the jacket and my hair would be wet.
MTI, Stern, Stohlquist, NRS, BAss Pro, Extrasport will all work. See the straps and how you could shoulder a gun while wearing one.
